Juventus striker Amauri is delighted with his decision to move to Parma in January.

The striker arrived on loan in January and has been crucial in securing the Ducali’s Serie A safety, not to mention rediscovering his own scoring touch.

“Juve are my ex-team and it’s certainly wonderful to play against them, but I have nothing to prove. I’ve done that already, so it’s a game like any other for me,” declared Amauri in a Press conference.

“I have always thanked Parma for having brought back my enthusiasm for football, while my teammates put me in a condition to do well. I worked hard too and with a club that had faith in me I was able to play consistently.

“It is very satisfying to go from being considered a waste of space in January to playing five months as the ‘real’ Amauri, so now I have transfer requests from all over the place.

“We’ll have to see what happens at the end of the season. It’s not certain I’ll stay at Parma, return to Juve or join another side. I’ll have to sit round a table with my agents and then decide.

“I am very happy at Parma and there’s no real reason for me to leave.”
